Well you can use CSS instead of Java Script, either way is your choice.

If you want to use Java Script, You may create a function for it and call this function on the tags related to the menu.

A good method you can use is splice(). Here you have a complete example of that: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1250639/indent-selected-text-with-javascript

Although if you decide to use CSS the text-indent can do the job: http://help.dottoro.com/ljxeqklb.php

Hope it helps!
